It’s that time of year for calendars and diaries – and we’ve got a very stylish alternative for you. The team at Accept and Proceed have produced a duo of works, ‘Hours of Light 2016’ and ‘Hours of Dark 2016’ that present a study of how many hours of light and dark we experience during a year through an effortless visual narrative.
Reducing light data down to its purest possible form, the total area of the white/black ring equates to total hours of light/dark in 2016. The area of the black/white hole in the centre equals total hours of dark/light. The ring is split into 366 segments, each representing a day. In the winter, the segments are smaller, conveying the decreasing length of daylight, while in the summer, larger segments convey the longer summer days.
